Clinical behavior analysis is the application of the conceptual and methodological tools of behavior analysis to treat problems that have traditionally been characterized as mental disorders, in order to improve the quality of life of the individual.

Problems are identified, goals are established, and the therapist and client work together to uncover the origin of underlying core beliefs and thought patterns, and replace them with healthier more productive ones.

HeartMath is a biofeedback system for improving heart rate variability. The heart rate variability pattern reveals the individualʼs ability to recover after physiological arousal (stress), reflecting a smooth or coherent transition between the sympathetic (fight or flight) system and the parasympathetic (rest and digest system). Heart rate variability (HRV) is an adaptive quality and is pertinent to physical, behavioral, emotional, and mental wellbeing.

The most current research in the field of nutrition and health psychology informs us that nutrition is an important variable in recovery from cognitive and emotional challenges. The brain and gut are integral elements of the central nervous system, connected and sharing the job of maintaining physical and mental health. Together we can explore the root causes of eating disorders and work together to design a meal plan. I also offer support to those facing dietary changes related to medical diagnoses. I offer coaching in nutrition and menu planning. My focus is all natural whole foods.
